Taiwan: Best Street Food in Taipei and Kaohsiung
This is not a food blog but Taiwan is like a street food haven. I just have to blog about it. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of Taiwanese street food. To sum it all, they are mostly GREASY and SWEET. I probably consumed 100,000 calories every day – my tummy is completely preggers. I need to work out – seriously. It was a good ‘eating’ experience. The food are inventive and interesting – a definite must-try for an authentic Taiwanese experience. I think I ate more than I shopped in Taiwan. Here’s a summary of all the interesting street food I tasted during my trip.
Taipei: Modern Toilet Restaurant
Remember my “Something Stinky?” blog post? Well, here’s the real deal. I celebrated my mum’s birthday (yes!) at Modern Toilet restaurant in Ximending, Taipei. We’ve heard and read about it – my family was excited about this place for the fun of it! You’ve to admit that a toilet-themed restaurant is pretty novel – something you’ll only find in Asian countries. Now who says you can’t talk about poop during meal times?
Taiwan is Sinful
I am a Teochew, and I simply digged having porridge once in awhile. Just along the street of Cheong Chin Nam Road opposite beauty world, I happen to chance upon Prince Taiwanese Porridge. I have to say Taiwanese are a bunch of SINFUL people, but I simply love them. They actually served Marinated Raw Cockles to go with their porridge.

One of the most satisfying dishes I had in Taipei was this little set that consisted of a bowl of soup, some veggies and the Taiwanese version of Loh Mai Kai. But without the Kai. Whoever thought of putting minced pork on veggies is a genius.
Taiwan: Food, Glorious Food
Warning! Gratuitous Food Pics Ahead! One of the best things about Taiwan is undeniably the food. From the 5 star restaurant to the local street stand, food is of utmost importance to the Taiwanese, and it shows. Eating out is a national pastime in this island nation so when in Taiwan, you should do as the locals do!
First, let’s start with the famous xiao chi (small eats) of Taiwan. These traditional Taiwanese snacks are found in roadside stands and markets everywhere.
This is one of my favorite foods of all time. Called bawan, it is a large rice dumpling stuffed with meat, bamboo shoots, and mushrooms that is steamed (or fried). This particular one comes from a street stand outside of Changhua. I prefer the steamed version found in Central and Southern Taiwan.
FOOD OF TAIWAN
I'm back from a two week trip to Taiwan. We stayed in BanQiao, which is a suburb of Taipei. Basically all you do in Taipei is eat, shop and eat. It's heaven if you ask me. I proudly present a gastronomical tour of some of the food i ate (and some that i didn't) during my vacation.
